Daily Covet: Four-Seater Bench

This little four-seater bench is one of my favorite things this morning.

As you’ve probably guessed, I adore the color.  And love the shabby-chic thing it has going on too.  What’s more, the adorable “holiday” pillows in pale pinks and blues are so unexpected for Santa Season.

But at almost a grand, this little bench won’t be gracing my front porch.  Instead, I’ll search out a vintage one for about 1/20 of the price in one of my nearby antique markets.

Who shops RSH.com anyway… ridiculous prices!

Daily Covet: Coach Station Bag for you too!

The Coach Station Bag.  Today, I am coveting one for anyone, who loves a convenient mid-sized feel in a compact little handbag.

While I did covet the Station Bag for a long time, I acquired one back in about 1998 or so.  I have recently resurrected it, and have to tell you, I LOVE IT!

It has 3 inside pockets that you can easy slip things in and out of… think accordian file.  And you can pop your oversized sunglasses on the top without their oversized case because the soft leather won’t scratch your lenses.  It can also be worn as a crossbody bag or held demurely with the top handle.

My black Coach Station Bag has the classic bronze hardware, which is cool because gold is so big right now.  But if you absolutely must have silver, Coach does that too.  And if you prefer a vintage one, there are plenty of those.  Although I don’t know who wouldn’t want to hold on to this amazing little bag!

So this day, I am doing more of a product review.  This is a fabulous little bag, and luckily one bag that I don’t have to buy!

Daily Covet: Navy and White Striped Blazer

Looking Parisian-chic in stripes should be a cinch this season.  Anything and everything you could ever want can be found in stripes.  And this adorable blazer is no exception.  It has a great fit, it’s a great weight for spring and summer, and it looks great with every color under the sun.

My Banana Republic happens to be next door to Ann Taylor, where there is also an adorable red knit dress that I would love to wear with it for going out or a day at the office.  But throw it on with jeans and a bright yellow tee, and you have a cute “around town” outfit.   Or choose kelly green boyfriend chinos and a denim shirt for a business casual Friday and shopping with your best girls.  The possibilities are endless!  (See Polyvore.com for where to buy.)

One jacket, three ways!
